I am posting this so if others run into this using LR, you will have a solution. I use windows 7 profressional.
I had a issue with exporting back to LR from Aurora 2018, also still presently having an existing problem with PS.
First off I should mention I loaded 2018 as plugins for both LR & PS . Its also on my desktop as a stand alone
I also read all the info for adding plugins for LR and PS
I would right click on my image I wanted to export from LR into Aurora, where you get an option to export to Aurora. The problem with that is when it arrives at Aurora you do not get the apply in the right top corner, which exports back in LR automatically when you are finished with your edit, so I would export two different ways 1) I would click on the box with the arrow coming out of it in the top right corner. 2) go to file and click on export
Here is where the problem lies with that, it will export, but you do not see it in same file automatically it came from, also even by going to import in LR, its not in the file you sent it to import it in manually, which is the same file where I sent it from in LR to Aurora..
Here's how I resolved the LR issue on my own.
Instead of exporting out by right clicking in LR on image or images and sending to Aurora, I go to file in LR and to export presets, where you get two options "Open Original images & Use Tiff with LR adjustments.. You need to import that way into Aurora using windows and then you get the apply in right top corner of Auoroa and it will then export back into LR automatically to the same file you sent it to >>>>>>> This will help others using LR
My PS issue I still have is not resolved, every time I export from PS into Aurora my image or images turn pink . I need to preface this by saying I export from PS into Nik and Topaz and back into PS when finishing my edit without any issues... If anyone has any thoughts or personally experienced this, I would appreciate how you resolved it.
Also asked about the Luminosity mask option a week ago when I initially contacted them, still no answer
